Travel Assistance Award Program

The ADVANCE at WSU Travel Assistance Award program is an initiative designed to support conference travel for eligible faculty. Specifically, this program supports travel for the dependents of faculty. The aim of the program is to recognize faculty impactful in their field and to promote scholarship and career development by providing a travel grant to support attendance at national conferences or international scientific meetings to present significant/novel findings. The ADVANCE at WSU Travel Assistance Award Program provides funding for proposals that involve invited and/or accepted presentations at national and international conferences offering unique scholarship, career, and/or leadership advancement opportunities for eligible WSU faculty.

All WSU women faculty members are eligible, with priority given to women from STEM departments and/or academic units wherein women faculty are otherwise under-represented. Additionally, all faculty members from historically underrepresented groups—  regardless of gender identity—are eligible. ADVANCE at WSU relies upon the NSF definition of underrepresented groups.
